Little Jumping Joan - Yippie Wedding

Orders already!!!

First one for a wedding gift.

 This time I have used white embroidered flowers and traced round them with pastel thread.
 I'm getting better at the machine writing, done this freehand! Usually have to pencil in writing.
I thought LJJ (Little Jumping Joan) was looking a bit pleased with herself.

I've also been framing finished ACEO collages for sale at two craft fairs in October.

I'm posting this for the lovely bloggers who join Handmade Harbour please take a trip around their blogs.

  7. This little collage is beautiful. I love the way you have brought together all of the vintage elements. Where do you find your old envelopes? I've kept an eye out for them (I love the old writing) but not come across any.
    I hope you have a creative week ☆★☆
